A 24-year-old Penn Yan man faces multiple charges after he allegedly led village police on a short pursuit early Sunday morning.
Joseph Cook, the Second failed to pull over for officers when they attempted to make a traffic stop on his vehicle on Seneca Street. Cook led police on a chase, which ended when he drove through a picket fence on Florence Avenue and crashed into a parked car. He then took off on foot with police chasing him through several backyards. Cook was eventually caught and taken into custody. He was placed through several field sobriety tests, which he failed. While at the police department, Cook allegedly started urinating on police property.
Cook is jailed on charges of DWI, two felony counts of criminal mischief, obstruction of governmental administration and resisting arrest.
